    This is actually my 2nd time around trying out the land/snow business. Started with a company back in 85 and worked for a few yrs.Wanted to go on my own ,but I was trying to run it like the old company, didn't work out. So I went back to them and worked another 13 yrs with them! But this time I didn't do what they were doing and didn't try and cheap out on everything. Maybe spent a little more on new stuff but at least it wasn't falling apart all the time. So 12 yrs later still hanging on!Thumbs Up
